Nginx reverse proxy not working with IPv6

Hi there! I wanted to test an Nginx reverse proxy configuration for Ajenti with IPv6, so I took the configuration from the documentation and changed it to IPv6 only:

server {
    server_name localhost;
    client_max_body_size 20m;

    listen [::]:80 ipv6only=on;

    location /ajenti {
        rewrite (/ajenti)$ / break;
        rewrite /ajenti/(.*) /$1 break;

        proxy_redirect / /ajenti/;
        proxy_set_header Host $host;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
Now I went to http://[fe80::20c:29ff:fe88:13a5]/ajenti/ (that is the IPv6 address of the virtual machine I tested this configuration in), entered root/admin and ... well ... I only get spinning wheels. I waited a couple of minutes before I gave up. The Firefox developer console says:
NS_ERROR_MALFORMED_URI:  resources.js:30
Unfortunately, resources.js consists of minified JavaScript code, so I could not debug this problem (or the allegedly malformed URL) any further.

Any suggestions? Unfortunately, I tried this because I wanted to retire all of my IPv4 services, so I hope that reverse proxying Ajenti with IPv6 is possible.


Could you please try using IPv6 again with the latest Ajenti release? It seems to work well now for me (either with direct [::1] hostname or IPv6 DNS entry).
